I can make a fortune, I can make a fortune from your face. I can build a fortress, I can build a fortress in your rib cage. Water on the road, water on the road from the lakes, from the lakes. No one rides a seahorse, no one rides a seahorse, no one rides a seahorse on the waves, on the waves. Shooting little holes and fillin em', shooting little holes and fillin em'. Miracle of the human race, miracle of the human race. Shoot the bird flying over the lake, shoot the bird flying over the lake, then you realize you can't swim it was a mistake, was a mistake. No one rides a seahorse, no one rides a seahorse, no one rides a seahorse on the waves, on the waves.
